Binh Phuoc (VNA) – One hundred impoverished ethnic minority households in the southern province of Binh Phuoc were presented with water tanks following the recent prolonged drought in this year’s dry season.

The water tanks were delivered on August 3 by the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) chapters of Binh Phuoc and Tay Ninh provinces in collaboration with the People’s Committees of Bu Gia Map and Bu Dang districts.

The programme had a total cost of 230 million VND (10,400 USD) which was mobilised from the two VFF chapters’ “Ho tro han han” (drought support) fund.

The initiative was a significant activity to help drought-affected ethnic minorities in far-flung and remote areas to stabilise their lives.-VNA
